Lucas J. Tanglen

Lucas J. Tanglen represents businesses seeking to maximize the value of their insurance assets. His experience representing policyholders in complex insurance matters includes directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance, product liability claims (including asbestos and other mass tort injury litigation), false advertising claims, intellectual property claims, cyber insurance, and environmental matters. In his active D&O insurance practice, Lucas counsels policyholders both in the placement of D&O policies and in pursuing insurance recoveries for settlements and defense costs in connection with securities lawsuits and other claims.

He is a co-author of the Policyholder’s Guide to the Law of Insurance Coverage (Kalis, Reiter, Segerdahl, and Tanglen), a treatise published by Wolters Kluwer. Lucas is experienced in drafting briefs and other court filings regarding complex issues of first impression and in taking depositions in insurance coverage actions. In his pro bono practice, he successfully argued a prisoner's appeal before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Lucas has a background in journalism. Before attending law school, he was a copy editor in sports and news departments at metropolitan newspapers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Spokane, Washington; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During law school, he was an intern for two Washington, D.C.-based national nonprofit organizations devoted to freedom of the press and other First Amendment rights.
